Calling Local Authors
Adding an indie bookstore purchase-link
It's easy to add indie online purchase-links to your email signature and website! www.indiebound.org is the American Booksellers Association's book database, and helps shoppers find the indie nearest them. Want to send a purchase link to your friends and family? Use this formula to find yours:
www.indiebound.org / book / your isbn-13 Example: www.indiebound.org/book/9780062574176
This same formula works for Gibson's Bookstore's website:
www.gibsonsbookstore.com / book / your isbn-13 Example: https://www.gibsonsbookstore.com/book/9780062574176
Gibson’s supports local writers!
If you have self-published your book, or if it is not available through our regular distribution, we are happy to take copies on consignment. Normal consignment terms are 60% of the cover price paid to the author after books are sold, with accountings every quarter or as appropriate. Please contact Michael or John to start the conversation. You can review our consignment policy and contract here.
Requesting an author event!
Gibson's hosts a very full event calendar, booking several weeks in advance! In order to evaluate and select the best events for our community, a formal proposal is required. All events involve considerable labor, and we want to ensure a successful event for both the author and the bookstore. Please fill out the form below. Our events coordinator will respond within 30 days. We are currently feeling our way back in to in-person events, but are being very cautious and are only planning on a small handful of in-person events this spring/summer. We are still hosting many virtual events.
Please note that we do not host author events in the physical store between Thanksgiving and New Years during any year.
